Tractor Supply hasn’t given up on Glen Rose.
After being denied its first request for a zoning change by the City Council on English Street two months ago, Tractor Supply now has a new proposal.
The potential new franchise owner is asking for a zoning change to put in a Tractor Supply on a 6.38-acre tract of land at 200 W. Gibbs Street.
The Glen Rose Planning and Zoning Commission voted on May 25 by a unanimous (4-0, with one member absent) vote to recommend to the City Council the necessary approval of the zoning change from R-1 (single family residential) to B-2 (general commercial).
It is not yet known if the zoning request will be on the agenda for consideration at the next City Council meeting on Monday, June 12.
In early April, Tractor Supply’s request for the zoning change at its first location choice — in the 500 block of English Street — was rejected.
The P&Z had voted, 4-0, recommending denial of the first zoning change request. At its next meeting a few days later, the City Council then voted by a 5-0 margin to turn down the zoning proposal.
Nine written protests opposed to the zoning change were received from Glen Rose residents prior to that April City Council vote on the first vote. Among the concerns brought up by those protests were potential problems with traffic, noise, night lighting and drainage in the English Street neighborhood.
Julia Douglas, chairperson of the P&Z, said after the vote that there have been no protest letters submitted concerning the potential Gibbs Street location.
Tractor Supply has more than 1,600 locations nationwide, including the nearby towns of Granbury, Cleburne and Stephenville.
